    Mathew Janczewski's ARENA DANCES

    March 27 and 28

    The Cowles Center for Dance & The Performing Arts

    Tickets: 612.206.3600

    thecowlescenter.org

    ARENA DANCES’ 20th Anniversary Season begins with a performance of Plastic Language (2005) on March 27 and 28 at The Cowles Center for Dance & The Performing Arts. Inspired by the surrealist works of painter Miro, this avant-garde work undulates between confined and open spaces as dancers attempt to establish communication between each other. Dancers (Dustin Haug, Stephen Schroeder and Timmy Wagner) oscillate between roles as spectator and performer, expanding concepts of relationship with oneself and another. This thought-provoking work is as technically stunning as it is conceptually challenging.

    7. COWLES CENTER PRESENTS SHAPIRO AND SMITH DANCE - APRIL 2-4

    Exploring wildness and beauty with a group of ten Twin Cities’ “divas” of dance, Shapiro & Smith Dance presents TABLEAU VIVANT. Tableau
 vivant was a popular theatrical form in the early 20th century. Performers posed in stillness on parade floats to depict historical or allegorical scenes. In an era of protest, the form gave women agency to explore new identities in their fight for suffrage. Many scenes were controversial for their display of female nudity, wavering between artistry and indecency. Shapiro & Smith Dance yanks these static scenes right off the 4th of July float and into the intimacy of the human experience. Five female Company members will be joined by Susanne Costello, Judith Howard, Mary Moore Easter, Zoe Sealy and Erin Thompson.

    The Company also premieres “Ravel x3,” a visually lush interpretation of three compositions by Maurice Ravel. The music drives the choreography creating an excitingly intricate, sensual work danced by the full company.

    Thursday April 2 through Saturday April 4.

    All performances at 8pm.

    $30/fees included

    Martha Graham has had a deep and lasting impact on American art and culture. She single-handedly defined contemporary dance as a uniquely American art form, which the nation has in turn shared with the world. Crossing artistic boundaries, she collaborated with and commissioned work from the leading visual artists, musicians, and designers of her day, including sculptor Isamu Noguchi and composers Aaron Copland, Samuel Barber, and Gian Carlo Menotti.

    Graham’s groundbreaking style grew from her experimentation with the elemental movements of contraction and release. By focusing on the basic activities of the human form, she enlivened the body with raw, electric emotion. The sharp, angular, and direct movements of her technique were a dramatic departure from the predominant style of the time.

    BONUS: The masterwork Panorama will feature 24 U of MN dance students as part of the extended Martha Graham Dance Company.

    11. CRIME AND PUNISHMENT AT THE SOAP FACTORY - APRIL 10

    Live Action Set, Dangerous Productions and The Soap Factory Present: CRIME AND PUNISHMENT

    A twisted interpretation of the Dostoevsky novel, CRIME AND PUNISHMENT blends physical theater, dance and visual art into an adventurous, immersive performance in the basement of The Soap Factory.

    Over 30 of the most captivating performers in the Twin Cities have been assembled under the creative direction of Noah Bremer, Tyler Olsen and Joanna Harmon to bring the characters, stories and psychological madness to life. Built over the entire span of The Soap Factory's basement and inspired by the post-industrial decay of this notorious space, some of the most talented visual artists around created an all-encompassing subterranean city fit for Dostoevsky's world. Composer Michael Croswell's original soundtrack, along with custom smells by St. Croix Sensory add a 4th dimension that weaves through the city, creating a thrilling and completely immersive experience.

    As one of the most successful shows in the 2014 Minnesota Fringe Festival, Live Action Set's CRIME AND PUNISHMENT brings an expertly crafted performance to The Soap Factory's basement. Hailed as "a triumph ... of tone and design", "elegantly constructed" and "impossibly rich" by the Tangential and a promise to "provoke, frighten, amuse, and evoke at once" by Minnesota Monthly, CRIME AND PUNISHMENT is an experience not to be missed. Your experience begins as soon as you purchase your ticket. Head to www.liveactionset.org and begin your journey now!

    Historic Gems

    As Limón impacted the world of modern dance, MDT Founder Loyce Houlton impacted the artistic landscape of Minnesota and beyond with her influential and forward-thinking work. Experience the depth and range of her renowned choreography firsthand as MDT’s acclaimed dancers showcase a collection of rare and beloved excerpts from which her legacy was built.

    30. GYROKINESIS® CLASSES AT THE COWLES CENTER

    The Gyrokinesis® method is a class that gently works the entire body, opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion, and creating functional strength through rhythmic, flowing movement sequences.

    The class is taught by Brittany Keefe, the owner of My Spiral Motion exercise studio and a dancer with the James Sewell Ballet. She became involved with the GYROTONIC® method nearly 20 years ago. Brittany earned her teaching credentials through master trainers Juergen Bamberger, Karen Mullen, and Leda Franklin; all of whom were original students of the GYROTONIC® creator Juliu Horvath. Brittany emphasizes having fun through exercise.

    55. LIVE ACTION SET SEEKING VOLUNTEER DANCERS

    Live Action Set is seeking volunteer dancers for their upcoming performance experience CRIME AND PUNISHMENT taking place in The Soap Factory's basement space this April.

    This is a completely immersive performance experience reimagined from the Dostoevsky novel. If you have heard of Sleep No More, the show is very similar to that aesthetic but with more emphasis placed on story and creating the tone of the novel. The performance involves some choreography and some improv work. Performances will take place in a mixture of static environments as well as one-on-one interaction with audience members. Performers must be 18+ and participate in a short Soap Factory volunteer training session. The process is collaborative and the ideas you bring to the table during the rehearsal process would also contribute to the final product.

    Dancers should have comfortability with:

    Wearing minimal clothing

    Audience interaction

    Sometimes acting in a sexually provocative manner

    Working with fake blood and effects

    Working in a basement environment

    Extreme physical exertion
